Summary of the week ending Jan 12th, 2013

This last week I worked on various improvements to the Hermetic Library. I had conversations via email, social media and others with various people about the collections at the library. I posted and shared a variety of things via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pilgrimage to Far-Distant Countries, Thelema and the Libri of Aleister Crowley, and elsewhere.

I want to remind you to check out the Hermetic Library Anthology Album call for Winter 2013 submissions, and the upcoming The Hermetic Library Anthology Journal.

The deadline for submissions to the Hermetic Library Album for Winter 2013 is only a couple of days away, so if you want to participate contact me.

And, I encourage you to consider contributing written and visual work to the upcoming Hermetic Library Journal. The Symposium section theme for Summer Solstice 2013 is Intolerance and Tolerance, so do also write something for this reader forum.
